Normal protein is composed with 20 kinds of basic amino acid and 3 kinds of special amino acid. Type and contents of amino acid and different by each protein. Functions are different as well. Amino acid in collagen is composed with 18 kinds. Especially, it has abundant glycine, proline, and hydroxy proline, which gives characteristics of collagen and structure. Thus, glycine in collagen has high moisture content with moisturizing and cholesterol excretion effect. Hydroxy proline helps create collagen in human body. It becomes more effective when Vitamin C, iron, etc. are added. As well, proline and hydroxy proline are combined as mutually twisted structure, so molecule of collagen is triple helix form.
